It’s easy to associate water damage with wet furniture and soaked carpet, but if left unaddressed, a minor flood or burst pipe could wreak havoc on your home and cost a small fortune to repair. The best way to reduce the overall restoration cost is to act quickly. Emergency drying equipment, such as air movers and dehumidifiers, can help you prevent mold growth, excessive structural damage, and possibly even salvage your furniture and belongings.
The bottom line: The cost of renting or buying commercial drying equipment will very likely be offset by the amount of money you save by preventing further damage to your home.

Read on to learn a few common reasons why business- and homeowners invest in emergency drying equipment:
It goes without saying that floodwaters can cleave a path of destruction. Besides bringing dirt and debris into your home, floodwaters can damage the structure of your home and increase the overall humidity level. Even after you have extracted the standing water, the conditions are still ideal for mold growth and dry rot. Air movers and dehumidifiers can reduce the humidity level in your home, preventing mold outbreaks and further damage.
2. Pipe Leaks
If left unaddressed, a small pipe leak can quickly build into major water damage. Just like a natural flood, water from a pipe leak can cause structural damage and raise the humidity in a room. The faster you apply an air mover and dehumidifier, the easier (and less expensive) the restoration process will be.
3. High Humidity
Even if your home did not sustain major water damage, high humidity levels alone can cause dry rot or mold growth. As a general rule, if you notice mold growth or dry rot, it’s a good idea to bring in a dehumidifier and air mover to prevent further damage.
